The standard Shepard’s U 10 broth (SU 10) was compare with a New Rapid Mycofast screening Kit-EM 32 (DBV Production, Sanary (France) for detection of Ureaplasma urealyticum in 40 females attending the antenatal clinics’ urealyticum was detected in 17 and 20 patients by SU 10 and Mycofast Kit –32 respectively. Two specimens were positive for U. urealyticum in SU 10 broth only and 5 in Mycofast MSUMM broth only. A comparison of the two methods showed concordant results in 33/40 samples. From the results of this preliminary study the Rapid Mycofast screening Kit-EM 32 may be recommended for screening of urogenital mycoplasma.
